    HARARE- Former students from schools in  the Catholic Dioceses of Gweru and Masvingo  will for the second time reignite the spirit of togetherness when they meet at Belvedere Primary School on September 30 2017 for a second reunion done through sports, Godknows Muwandi one of the organisers has confirmed.
    The inter-Catholic schools reunion will have five schools from two that participated last year and these are; Gokomere, Serima, Silveira, St Antony and Hama he said.
    The reunion will be held under the theme; Retracing Memories, Building the Future.
    "The purpose of the reunion is to network, interact, cross pollinate ideas, collaborate, discuss developmental issues and see how we can assist our former schools as old students.
    "This year we are expecting five schools to take part and we are targeting over a thousand former students from 630 who participated last year at the ZESA Training Centre. There are going to be a variety of ball games like the ones played at inter Catholic schools that is soccer, netball, basketball, tennis and darts just to mention a few," said Muwandi.
    He added that besides sporting activities families will have an opportunity to braai and have drinks which will be sold at the venue by those shortlisted by the 15 member committee.
    Muwandi said there is no fee that will be charged to former students to participate, but those who intend to do business at the venue will have to pay a certain fee which will also be used to pay for the venue.
    "We have taken advantage of various old students associations, Whattsapp groups and other social media to spread the word and the response has been overwhelming. We also expect companies to sponsor with kits and sporting equipment which we will donate to our former schools after the games as part of corporate social responsibility in conjunction with the company that would have donated," said Muwandi.
    He also said it's an opportunity for companies to showcase their products as there would be over 1000 former students together with their families at the reunion.
